Intravenous Vitamin C has been used extensively, and has been shown to be very safe at dose up to 50 -150 grams ( 50,000- 150,000 mg) a day. I very seldom exceed 100,000 mg at one administration, more commonly infusing 25,000- 50,000 mg. The benefits of intravenous Vitamin C administration include reduced risks of cancer, cardiovascular disease, and cataracts.
Doses higher than RDA of vitamin C have been associated with increases in HDL cholesterol, decreases in LDL cholesterol oxidation, decreased blood pressure, and decreased cardiovascular mortality. It has also been described as very effective in reducing symptoms of a “hang-over” after drinking too much alcohol, improvement in your immune system, and reduction in symptoms and the duration of the flu or common cold. Vitamin C is a powerful anti-oxidant, reducing damaging free radicals in your body. Often Vitamin C infusions are given in conjunction with B-vitamin infusions and the Myers cocktail.
